The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have become one of the most talked about pop bands in years. Their distinctive brand of noisy pop is a tidy distillation of all the great noise-pop precedents – early MBV, House of Love, Pale Saints, Rocketship – but with that incredible exuberance and energy that the Pains bring to every song. They have released a handful of singles on classy labels like Slumberland, Fortuna Pop!, Atomic Beat and Cloudberry, each one issued to greater anticipation and even wilder reception.

Hotel St. George is a four piece rock and roll outfit hailing from sunny San Diego, California. They came together in late 2007 after a chance meeting between singer Matt Binder and bassist Erik Visnyak at the natural history museum. The two of them soon enlisted Simon Leader on drums and Brian Reilly on guitar to round out the quartet. A few short months later they netted themselves two San Diego Music Award Nominations; one for Best New Band and one for Best Alternative Album.

Tropical Popsicle is the brain child of Tim Hines. Although seemingly brand new, the project began roughly a year ago as an avenue for the darker structures and sound he was beginning to experiment with. The result is a beast unto itself; think beach boys on bath salts. These guys personify community, but thrive on originality.

The concert will be held on October 10, 2011 at the Belly Up Tavern. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show begins at 8:00 PM. Google Map.
